Put Your Assets to Work for the Kingdom
You may hold appreciated assets that could be beneficial to further the kingdom. Assets that are considered long term capital-gain assets receive special treatment if gifted directly to a charity. This could include publicly traded stocks or bonds, real estate, coins, and other collectibles.
For instance, if you hold publicly traded stocks with long term capital-gains, you can gift those stocks directly to Biblica, bypass the potential capital-gains tax, and take a charitable deduction for the full market value of the stocks on the date gifted. This allows you to put the full market value of your appreciated securities to use in the ministry and avoid taxes that would be incurred if you sold the stocks to support ministry.
Appreciated assets can also be used to fund planned gifts such as Charitable Gift Annuities and Charitable Trusts.
